Financial year ends with a bang, and rental markets strong inside and outside Hamilton’s boundaries

By David Kneebone on 2022-04-21
Lodge Rentals Market Report April 22 v1
With the financial year ending on 31 March, at Lodge City Rentals we certainly closed out the year with a bang. Last month saw record numbers of tenant enquiries come through – 3,795 to be exact – from those looking for their next home. This certainly bodes well for both our experienced landlords as well as those new investors coming on board with Lodge as they start their investment property portfolios.

Opportunities to be found in tight rental market, and property management regulation on the way

Here at Lodge City Rentals, February saw a continuation of the market buoyancy we experienced in January, with our team certainly putting in the hard work:


City growth, students and hopeful home buyers add pressure to Hamilton’s available rental stock

By David Kneebone on 2022-02-17

February often marks the ‘real’ start of the year, as people settle into routine, schools return and we get stuck into work following the long weekends. After high enquiry numbers in January, with our team fielding 3,970 tenant enquiries, February remains steady so far as Hamilton continues to experience growth as a city.


Back and busy in 2022

By David Kneebone on 2022-01-24


A very Happy New Year to you all! We’ve launched into 2022 at Lodge City Rentals, with our team hitting the ground running during what is traditionally our busiest period. We’re enjoying working closely with landlords and tenants, and as always are ready to adapt, moving to our red traffic light settings as of Monday 24 January.


We wave goodbye to 2021

By David Kneebone on 2021-12-17

Well we’ve made it – the end of 2021 is here. I think we’d all agree the year took some twists and turns we weren’t expecting, but at Lodge City Rentals we feel we’re finishing the year on a high. Our team are busier than ever with the summer rush, as many prepare for 2022 early to allow for a relaxing summer break.


Rental market buoyant, but is a boom on the horizon?

By David Kneebone on 2021-11-12

October saw the rental market retain its buoyancy and we expect that to continue as we head into the last few weeks before the Christmas/New Year break. Lodge Rentals had over 3,000 tenant enquiries in October and we signed up 100 new tenancies in 31 days, all while under alert level 3 restrictions.


As the weather heats up, so does the rental market

Firstly, thank you to all our clients for your patience during the upheaval caused by the recent alert level changes. We know it can be a tricky time for many, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team if you have any concerns or need extra help with anything.



Step into the future of property management and the rental market

By David Kneebone on 2021-09-09

Covid-19 has certainly thrown us a curveball in the last month, and our team transitioned to their home offices once again during lockdown. What was different compared to last time, particularly on the real estate side of Lodge, was that buying and selling continued through the lockdown, and we held successful online auctions where all 17 properties sold.
